Up Down Up Fancy Fold Card

Do you enjoy a fancy fold card? I’ve got a cute fancy fold for you which I shared on my 12 Weeks of Christmas series on Saturday.

This is a relatively quick fancy fold and is a twist on a gatefold card. I like that you can use leftover paper to decorate it. In my video I share a few examples which show that it will work with whatever products you have.

Hello and great to have you join me in sunny, windy, doesn’t-know-what-it-wants-to-be kind of day in Melbourne. It’s been beautiful but not great for allergy sufferers. Welcome to another Around the World on Wednesday blog hop. Whether you’re a child or a child-at-heart, our team have projects to inspire the child in each of us.

Around the World on Wednesday, Awow Blog Hop team, This is us August 2023

When I think of children I always think of how much fun they love to have and especially at birthdays and Christmas – it’s always fun to have a surprise. So with that in mind, I made a Pull Tab Slider Card. This has a secret message, moving element, some glitter and a cute balloon bearing bird. Not just suitable for a child, I think any adult may love to receive this fun card too!

To create the balloons, I inked up the image from the Celebrate with Tags stamp set and then pounced a Stampin’ Write Marker in a contrast colour. After this I spritzed the stamp and stamped on Fluid 100 Cardstock to create the watercoloured balloons.

I added a secret message under the slider section which was decorated with party images from the Taco Fiesta stamp set. The sweet bird flies through with a bunch of balloons to reveal the Happy Birthday.

I will be creating a video to show how to create this card, which will be uploaded this weekend. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to be notified when new videos are posted.

Thank you for stopping by and I’d love for you to leave me a comment as you pass through to see what my friend Cheryll Miller has created today.

The flower was coloured with Pool Party, Polished Pink and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Soft Sea Foam and Pool Party Blends. The White circle embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder provides the contrast for the flower to stand out against.

aWow Blog Hop – Never Ever Grow Up Fancy Fold

Welcome to our Around the World Blog Hop where on the 2nd Wednesday of each month we share Stampin’ Up! inspiration from various parts of the world. Today our theme is Never Ever Grow Up which immediately makes us think of children.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

However, as I write this, I think of my partner Adrian because I think he missed the memo about growing up. Always up for a lark, I could have easily done a project for him. Ha! Ha! I digress.

Instead, I focused on my daughter Cassidy. We have a tradition, ever since I started with Stampin’ Up! which was about 8 years ago, I’ve created a fancy fold card for birthdays and Christmases. Each fancy fold is different and they will always be one that I havent’t tried before because then it felt that extra special.

So today I’ve created the Triple Cube Pop-Up Card for the first time using a tutorial by Lisa Curcio. I like fancy folds that are wow without being intensely difficult. This is one of those folds. It comes together so quickly.

I used the free Sale-A-Bration Hippest Hippos stamps and dies. Each of these products are free with a $90 order whiles supplies last, until 31st August. So if you spend $180 you will be able to get both products. These gals are so cute and were really fun to colour.

That unsual pink on the umbrella was achieved by me trying Mint Macaron and not liking it. So I went over it with the Dark Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend and presto, a new colour!

I’ve chosen the ‘Awww, you’re the best’ sentiment which is apt as Cassidy and I generally try to see who can say it last before we go to bed. It’s our ‘thing’.

How much fun would a child get when they open this card and it pops open and these 3 hippos stand their looking so cute? I think any kid would just love it. This neatly fits in a regular C6 envelope for posting.

Measurements:

Cardstock: 20cm x 21cm

Score on the long side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm

Turn to the right and cut right down at 5cm and 10cm which forms the 2 side boxes

Catch my FB Live tonight to watch me make this fun fold. My newsletter my subscribers will receive a full tutorial with cutting dimensions in both metric and imperial for this card.

Next on our hop is the amazingly talented Aurelie Fabre France. Make sure you check out her creation and follow the hop right through. Please give us some love by leaving us a comment as you visit us around the world. We love hearing from you.

aWow Blog Hop – Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

Thank you for visiting me in Melbourne for our monthly trip Around the World on Wednesday. Our theme is ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boys’ with a focus on the men in our lives.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

I was not quite sure which direction I was going to take with this as my partner Adrian has several passions. He loves kayaking and surfing so I initially wanted to go along that theme. Then I shifted gears as he is a talented musician, music teacher and accompanist and I wanted to create a card with that in mind. In fact we met in church where he was the pianist/organist and I was a chorister so this card seemed perfect.

I’ve made a Centre Step Easel Card which is a really easy fun fold to create.

CENTRE STEP EASEL MEASUREMENTS

  • Card Front – 21cm x 14.8cm (scored in half at 10.5cm)
  • On the top half of the card cut at 4cm and 10.8 upto the score line.
  • Cut out these sections.
  • Fold the remaining centre portion in half to form the easel.

To create the piano keys I cut strips of Basic White Cardstock at 1.5cm and Basic Black Cardstock at 1cm. The Black keys were rounded using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

For the inside of the card I used the waves from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set to stamp the background in Tahitian Tide and Bermuda Bay (stamped off). I just had to incorporate something of the ocean (at least in name!).

The music notes were hand drawn with the Basic Black Marker and I added some Matte Black Dots to give them dimension.

When folded this card will fit in a 6″ square envelope. However, this might not end up in an envelope as I’ll probably just hand it to Adrian! By making the front panel smaller,this card will fit in a regular C6 envelope.

Although this is probably not your regular ‘guy’ card, it suits my guy and is suited for any music lover.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have enjoyed my creation. For lots of inspiration for masculine makes make sure you travel the world with us and check out all the amazing work of these ladies, beginning with lovely Cheryll Miller.

Create a Sweet Card with this Simple Border

I love creating cards which are simple to make yet they have a WOW factor to it. To create this card, a small panel has been cut from the front so that pretty border at the back shows through.

I’ve also added a piece of Supple Shimmer for some extra prettiness. You get 2 sheets of this paper in the pack – 1 pink and 1 a light mint. The simple stamped leaf border creates a pretty effect.

You can choose the Friendly Hello bundle as your free product with a $180 order during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion which runs until 16th March. Sale-A-Bration products are available while supplies last.

Click here to watch the video on how to make this card.
